My Knight in Shining Armor

It's not every day that my husband is knighted.

On Sunday, my handsome, amazing husband was formally knighted in an awe-inspiring Knights of Divine Mercy ceremony.

Joe, together with nearly 80 men, completed a year of spiritual study and homework and a regimen of regular Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, Spiritual Direction, and more -- all under the tutelage of the saintly Fr. Rick Heilman. I couldn't be more proud of Joe. He was invested in the brown scapular on Sunday (something that he had missed out on during his childhood), and he was given a "battle-pack of Catholic sacramentals--Rosary, holy water, blessed salt, and more--the recommended "spiritual armor" for Catholic men, husbands, fathers, and leaders.

Congratulations, my Love! Your Lady hopes to live up to your fine example.

This is so cool. Father Rick should write a book and get his ideas and practices out to the world!
